More fun facts about ancient Celtic marriage laws: There were no laws against interclass or interracial marriage, no laws against open homosexual relationships (although they weren’t considered ‘marriages’ since the definition of a marriage was ‘couple with child’), no requirement for women to take their husband’s names or give up their property, but comedians couldn’t get married
Sometimes I don’t know what’s worse: Gemma’s lies or Jax’s stupidity.
Honestly, this season has pushed me into “Jax’s (willful) stupidity” as the worst because after six seasons of this shit, nothing Gemma does surprises me anymore. What makes Jax’s current action so absolutely infuriating for me is that they’ve been brought about by him taking Gemma’s story at face value when he knows better. I do not understand where anyone’s head is at this season.
the thing i find most incredible about this show is that walton goggins let them put a giant fake swastika tattoo on his arm
One of my favorite stories from when they were shooting the first season was one that Walton Goggins told on NPR (at least, that’s where I think I heard it,) about how during the first couple of weeks of filming, he and Olyphat were either doing promotional stuff or location shooting or something, and they had to check into a hotel. Goggins still had on the tattoo because they were still filming and decided just to roll up his sleeves just to see what people’s reaction would be. He was enjoying himself, noting the way people responded to it, until Olyphant noticed what he was doing and was like, “Stop it.”
At any rate, it’s probably safe to say that Goggins probably wasn’t too fussed about the fake tattoo, and hey, we likely have that tattoo to thank for Boyd’s wardrobe ever since! Much easier to stick the guy in long sleeves & vests instead of trying to put that sucker on every week. :)
The spelling error in that gif aside (people, get it together), that’s pretty much how I feel about that bit in Entertainment Weekly. I hate “off-screen,” blarg. I know that the Venus/Tig bit is a side story and can’t take up the entire show…but I want to watch the entire progression of their relationship, from inception to Tig’s inevitable death, and off-screen just means that I have to write fanfic and I’m effing lazy, okay.
But I’m going to just shove all those feelings away and rest on YAYYYYY VENUS, as she is my fave and the show needs someone who isn’t awful now that Tara is gone and they don’t seem interested in giving Lila a larger role to play in the action.
Neither Buffy nor anyone on Supernatural count, though, because once you’re brought back more than once, I cease to worry/care about your peril because it clearly does not exist. Let’s talk about favorite characters who have died and stayed dead. Like Wash. Like Opie. Like Kareen Said.
